Several people were injured during a car crash in South Philadelphia.


Chopper 6 was over the 1500 block of Ringgold Street around 4:15 p.m. Monday.

A vehicle struck several pedestrians during a block party.

At least eight people are believed to be seriously injured, and three of them are being evaluated at the scene.

A 57-year-old woman was taken to Jefferson Hospital, a 60-year-old woman was taken to Penn Presbyterian Medical Center. Two other victims, a 94-year-old woman and a 48-year-old woman were taken to Hahnemann University Hospital for treatment.
